The Francisco José de Caldas Science Center is a space for citizen construction that promotes the Science + Technology + Innovation intersection between scientists and social groups, as a concrete action for the social appropriation of science, technology and innovation through of the use of collaborative tools to search for alternatives to problems in the Department of Caldas. It links concepts related to collaborative thinking and strategies for the collective construction of knowledge and consolidates a community of problem solvers (Makers) based on research results, social needs, knowledge of the local culture or specific challenges for the development of skills; that give rise to a space for dialogue of knowledge between social groups, experts, students and creative industries.

    Colombia

    Activator
     
    Plastic artist who began as a painter. My interest in the image as a vehicle for the representation of the visual experience led me to explore photography, sculpture, 3D modeling and virtual reality. Thanks to my master's degree in Digital Fine Arts (London 2015 - 2017), I managed to refine my visual proposal by creating Installations that combine painting and sculpture with photography and virtual reality, they are hybrid Meta-Images that challenge the formal attributes of the image; flatness, frame, stillness and monocular vision and challenge the viewer by proposing an exploration exercise in which the image evolves over time while it is explored both as an object and as a representation space.
